Researchers have processed data from a long-running study to show that the presence or absence of heart disease risk factors in middle age predicts remaining life expectancy. Those with no risk factors live a somewhat longer, on average. It is interesting to note that only a small portion of the population are free...
DNA-PK and Age-Related Decline in Mitochondrial Function Loading... Researchers here have identified one of the proximate causes of mitochondrial decline with aging. The research is pitched as a path to helping control obesity, as that is where the funding...
The field of exercise mimetics is still young, but quite similar at the high level to the more established attempts to find drugs that mimic portions of the calorie restriction response. Exercise and calorie restriction are the two most obvious, well-studied, and reliable means of adjusting the operation of metabolism in order to...
This report captures the state of the research community in a nutshell: progress in the sense that ever more scientists are willing to make the treatment of aging the explicit goal of their research, but, unfortunately, there is still a long way to go in improving the nature of that research. It is...
Researchers here demonstrate that tinkering with the normal operation of lipid metabolism in mice can improve healing and reduce inflammation following a heart attack, suggesting that the approach may have broader applications in cardiovascular disease. Two immune responses are important for recovery after a heart attack - an acute inflammatory response that attracts leukocyte...
